 I posted this idea on Ubuntu Brainstorm. So I thought I'd bring it here :)

 It would be nice if Pidgin could auto-block bots, especially in Yahoo
 chatrooms, like Gyachi does. They tend to get very annoying and it's
 frustrating to have to keep clicking ignore on them every few seconds.
 What if Pidgin could learn along the way between bots and actual people by
 judging the text usage?

 Maybe have Pidgin log bots by having a option when you right click on a
 name, that says "Add to Bot List", and when you do, all the text from that
 username gets logged. Along the way, Pidgin will learn the difference
 between humans and bots by judging commonly used bot text and bot username
 characters such as in a text file and auto-blocking. Similar to a spam

 Hopefully I made that clear enough lol.
